First, the positive reviews of this account of a Yank in the RAF, and then the famous 4th Fighter Group, are deserved, and I dont feel the need to add much to them, except to note that, be aware that the book is not written directly by Lee Gover, but is assembled from Gover's diaries, logbooks, etc by Philip Caine, who has done a creditable job. And if it is combat air action that you seek, this book would not be a top choice. It contains many entertaining stories of trips into wartime London, conveying the atmosphere of that time superbly, and, man, this pilot certainly went out with enough English girls to satisfy a whole squadron. He indicates he learned some interesting techniques in England, and I dont mean flying. His air combat accounts are as thrilling as any, when you reach them, but overall, they take second place to the dating action off-base, I feel.
What I must really do is issue a warning: the e book is a sloppy, poorly produced thing, like so many non fiction e books. Get a paperback, a library copy, anything but the ebook. While the ebook does contain some photos (amazingly, since most do not), they are about as grainy and blurry as some old daguerreotype. I cannot believe the photos in theprinted books look thus.
